The Playalinda beach resort in Aruba is a top level resort. It has the best beach area in Aruba and has a great staff working the beach. Security is excellent, the grounds are well kept and activities for those with children. The staff is an exceptionable well disciplined crew who are always ready to assist with a courteous smile.

First off let me say that the big reasons why this resort did not get 5 stars is because of two things: 1. Arrived on Sunday and woke up Tuesday morning to Jack Hammers and Bulldozers and they were tearing the main pool down!! No one at the resort told us this was gonna happen nor did the person who...

The entire staff is always so helpful but our kids fell in love with the Kids Club our very first year there and so did we. Yadira, Yvette, Valerie and Gladys are amazing! Our kids love going to Aruba every... More

Playa Linda is truly a home away from home. The resort has unique architecture and not like any other on the island. It is warm and cozy and the staff is kind and friendly. The resort is perfectly situated between the Hyatt and Holiday Inn and doesn't experience the high winds that Marriott guests experience. The beach and the chickens/palapas... More

Stayed at Playa Linda for 12 days March 22 until April 3rd. We rented a studio the first week and a 1 bedroom the second week. This resort is beautiful with a top notch staff. First of all transfering rooms was very easy and organized. You prepare your belongings and the staff places everything in your new room when it... More

Another glorious week at PL. Even the serious construction underway at the pool area couldn't prevent a really great vacation. We are not owners but PL has been the #1 choice for our Aruban week for several years now. We stayed in a studio and a one bedroom during this visit and were very happy with both. The staff were...

We are time share owners at this resort and love it. Now through August may not be the best time in 2015 to visit if you are pool users the large pool is being reconstructed though there is a smaller lap pool for use. This did not affect our vacation in any manner as we spend our entire day at... More
